I had always wanted to visit the Museum so on route to the northern coast of Spain I stopped off for a day in Bilbao.
A cosmopolitan city with an eclectic mixture of very modern and historic buildings. Don't miss the old town while you are there.
There is a good Metro system that takes you to the heart of the city.
The museum itself is not like most English art galleries.
There are exhibitions by several artists but don't go expecting a wide range of artists on display.
The building is the star. An amazing mix of glass, titanium and stone cladding.
Well worth seeing but quite unexpected.
